About

I’m a multimedia journalist based in Los Angeles who covers immigration and inequality.

I’m currently a staff reporter for Capital & Main, a nonprofit newsroom that covers the intersection of inequality and the major issues of our time. I’m also a California fellow with the USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism.

Last year, I investigated the US government’s private deportation flights as a Fund for Investigative Journalism diversity fellow.

My work has been published by major outlets, including the Guardian, CNN, Univision, Splinter, the World Policy Journal and the British Medical Journal.

Previously, I reported as a freelancer on social justice, crime, corruption and security in the Americas.

While based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Medellín, Colombia, I produced breaking news, features, profiles, investigations, photo reports, travel, opinion, long-form reports and journal articles. I reported on how marginalized neighborhoods use hip hop and graffiti to prevent violence, how US anti-choice groups threaten women’s rights in Latin America and how women victimized by the Colombian conflict fight for justice. I also worked for a year as a contributing writer for InSight Crime.

Before that, I worked from Washington DC as a researcher, writer, analyst and advocate on US foreign policy towards Latin America. As a fellow with the Center for International Policy I wrote blogs about security assistance. As a program associate with the Latin America Working Group, I attended high-level government meetings, produced a video project with Honduran migrants and conducted fieldwork in El Salvador for the publication of a widely-cited report, among many other projects. I also co-hosted and co-produced Periphery, a podcast on security and rights in the Americas. My work as a female foreign policy expert was featured by Foreign Policy Interrupted and Women in Foreign Policy.

I’m a Miami-born Cubana-Puertorriqueña. I’m fluent in English and Spanish, and have working proficiency in Brazilian Portuguese. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Global Affairs from George Mason University and a Master’s degree in Latin American Studies from Vanderbilt University.
